Wilbur Thompson worked as a parking cashier starting in the mid-1970's. He was at the Astrodome for Astros and Oilers games, as well as the Houston Rodeo and Livestock show, plus various concerts. His children would often come to the Dome when he was working. Joseph Thompson (Wilbur’s son) was a big Astros fan. He and his school friends would attend the games. He thought it was very cool to have a dad who worked for the Astros. Susan Thompson (Wilbur’s daughter) recalls fond memories of spending a day at Rodeo and then going to the concerts each weekend on a $5.00 ticket. The youngest Joshua Hansen (Wilbur’s grandnephew) recalls attending games as a family and being amazed at the size of the Dome. The family agrees that the Astrodome is an important part of their Houston heritage. License A legal document giving official permission to do something with the resource.

HMRC is located in the historic Julia Ideson Building. Created in 1976, HMRC furthers its mission by providing in-depth reference services using materials including the Texas and local history book collection, archives, photographs, architectural drawings, oral histories, and maps.

The map collection concentrates on street maps for Texas communities, key maps for Harris and the surrounding counties, aerial photography maps of greater Houston, specialized book maps, and flood insurance rate maps. The archival collections focus on non-current records of local government, corporations, businesses, public and private associations, religious institutions, cultural and civic organizations, labor groups, educational institutions, and any other organization or group that has played a role in the development of Houston.
